CUCC members and guests in Austria 1976 to present

This is a pretty much complete list of all the personnel on 40 CUCC expeditions (there was no expo in 1986), together with the total number of expeditions each has attended and the total number of people on each expedition.

Qualification for inclusion involves some active contribution to the expedition such as going underground, surface surveying, sherpa-ing, camp-shopping or diving for resurgences. Years marked in red indicate some certainty that the person didn't go underground that year. Persons marked in red are thought to have never been underground on expo at all. Note that diving in Altausseer See for the resurgence has been counted as underground:- it certainly counts as effort expended in the pursuit of speleology!

In the table, a section mark (§) indicates someone who was an individual guest of CUCC or of a CUCC member, or who was a member of UBSS or ULSA when they were present as guest clubs in 1981,1982 or 2008-onwards. We don't guarantee to have got all such people correctly marked. Similarly, the currency symbol (¤) marks those who are (or were) individual members of the local Austrian group Verein für Höhlenkunde im Obersteier. A face icon indicates a link to a mugshot (and brief notes) in our Rogues' Gallery. Just one of the listed members is a vehicle - no prizes for guessing which one without looking at the photos :-)

The table doesn't include the local cavers who have caved with us at various times. These include particularly Karl Gaisberger :-), Gunter Graf, Sepp Steinberger and Robert Seebacher :-).

Expo head count 9 13 14 9 15 21 14 14 10 8 0 11 21 27 30 24 24 17 18 16 40 21 13 27 23 17 19 14 16 20 12 30 19 22 12 34 23 18 28 35 31

280 people have taken part in expo altogether (not counting non-combatants or vehicles(!)), of whom 140 have their pictures on the site so far.

Although few take such statistics seriously, the most dedicated expoers are Wookey (Wook) (20 expos), Becka Lawson (20), and Anthony Day (Dour) (20). Mark Shinwell holds the record for consecutive expo attendance (10), but didn't actually go caving on all those, so this record arguably falls to Julian Haines and Brian Outram (9 each). A more obscure record was set by Wadders in 2015: longest interval between expos (17 years), except that he didn't actually go underground, so it may be shared by Mark Dougherty, Juliet Morse and Chris Densham, who have all returned after gaps of 13 years

Outside-expo caving has started, with Becka Lawson, Neil Pacey, Julian Todd and Wookey joining various Arge and VfHO trips in recent years. However, the much talked-about winter expedition/holiday has still not happened, though there is still a lot to be said for it. With draughts reversed in the cold, top entrances should be more obvious and skiing would make a nice change from sitting watching the rain. Some entrances would inevitably be blocked by snow but others seem to remain open all winter.
